Quotes:
From Beverly Hills Cop III (1994)
Jon Flint: Look, isn't it just possible that you're mistaken, Foley? That Ellis Dewald just resembles Todd's killer?
Axel: I made the guy in Detroit. It was Dewald.
Jon Flint: I mean, Dewald is the head of the largest private police department in Southern California. I mean, he works with us! With the L.A.P.D. Hell, with the governor's office! Everybody loves him.
Det. Sgt. William 'Billy' Rosewood: He's even getting an award tonight from the National Association of Security Agencies.
Jon Flint: Axel, it's understandable that you're distraught and-and looking for justice, and not to mention revenge. But, isn't it just possible that you - that you want it so much, that you saw your killer in a man who bore a slight resemblance?
Det. Sgt. William 'Billy' Rosewood: Hell, we run into this all the time in police work, Axel.
Axel: Where's Dewald getting that award tonight?
Jon Flint: Axel, don't.
Axel: Hey Flint, your friend Dewald it foul, okay? I know he's foul and I'm goin' down to this award show tonight and I'm gonna put some pressure on him and maybe I'll panic him into doing something stupid.
Det. Sgt. William 'Billy' Rosewood: Axel, if you go to that dinner tonight... I'm going with you.
